Texas drops five straight for first time since 1956

CBS Sports

Just 10 games into the Steve Sarkisian era at Texas, the Longhorns matched a historic low on Saturday night with a 57-56 loss to Kansas in overtime. It was Texas' fifth straight loss, marking the first time the Longhorns have dropped five straight since … 1956! Kansas, meanwhile, picked up its first Big 12 road win since 2008. 

The last time Texas lost five straight games in 1956, Dwight D. Eisenhower was president, "The Ten Commandments" was the biggest movie in the world and the Longhorns' lone win of the season was on the road against Tulane — an SEC program at the time. The last time Texas lost to Kansas in football was 2016, and coach Charlie Strong was fired at the end of that season. 

Kansas scored 21 unanswered points during an 85-second flurry at the end of the first half thanks to a fumble and pick-six from freshman quarterback Hudson Card, one of two quarterbacks that the Longhorns used against the Jayhawks.
